Karnataka high court has rejected a plea for bail by the imprisoned former chief minister of the southern state of Tamil Nadu, Jayaram Jayalalitha.

The Karnataka High Court said it found no reason to suspend her conviction.

Jayalalitha, one of India's most colourful and controversial politicians, was jailed last month for four years on corruption charges.

In a case that lasted 18 years, she was found guilty of amassing unaccounted-for wealth of more than 10 million dollars.

Her AIADMK party named finance minister O Panneerselvam as her successor and he was sworn in as chief minister last week.

A large number of Jayalalitha's supporters are in the city to show solidarity for their leader.

In neighbouring Tamil Nadu state, thousands of Jayalalitha's party supporters have held meetings and prayers for her release.

The flamboyant former film star has a huge following in Tamil Nadu and her imprisonment dismayed her supporters who have held protests and wept openly.
